Drypoint Printmaking

By taking the plate into an ancient building I can start my image whilst experiencing the surroundings and atmosphere, and then continue working  in my studio until ready to make my print.

When making a monoprint, I work in my studio from memory in an intuitive fashion, painting onto the plate, making the print, and then working back into the image when with watercolour
